  • More Pain Is Coming To Equities [View article]
    Total agree with you.. Earnings are good due to the weaken USD. USD basically has weaken against all currencies by 20-30%. imagine the impact they make to all the US companies..It also help US to reduce their trade deficit as a result..

  • Margin Calls Whacking Gold [View article]
    A cheaper gold will be good.. let hope it go even lower.... when gold and equities market move in correlation, the market is heading down even more..just that expectations over more rescues by govt/organizations are pushing up the market..**Delusion**

  • What To Look For In The Market Next Week: U.S. Earnings, Euro Bailouts And Banks [View article]
    Rewarding bad banks/companies/countries are the forte of government/ECB/IMF/Fed.. They should have let Greece default long time ago, they only know how to prolong the pain and i reckon it due to the face issue (like Asian culture), as letting Greece default will make European Union to lose alot of face in the world if they fail to back Greece.

    Market been trading in a range since Aug, market will do another rally due to lot of government talking/intervention, looking to short more at 1200...

  • Equity Valuation Update [View article]
    Equity Analysts/Strategists will always be positive over the market as they never take into the macro factors into considerations.

    Most of their research reports are still buy... they are the worst stock pickers as majority of them never invest due to company restrictions before so they wouldn't feel the pain.

  • Equity Valuation Update [View article]
    If you plan to long, don't ever think of it .. It's just the start of the bear trend. Bear trend normally will take at least a minimum of 16mths. It's not worthwhile to invest to get 8% when there's a higher probability of a drop of >8%.

    The market has been trading in a range since 2000. see this..

    Stay clear of the market and don't buy because it cheap cos it will be cheaper..

  • The Market Turns Red [View article]
    Still waiting for US to turn bear market.. Persistent long fund managers who still so optimistic over the earnings.

    USD is rising and might be hitting conversion of foreign revenues to US earnings which will reduce their earnings/profits.

  • Is The Dow In 1930 A Preview Of 2012? The Case For The 2009 Lows [View article]
    Humans will always look at the most recent lows on the most recent history. The previous credit crisis hit even lower than the dot-com bubble.. I doubt no one can explain why it tanked there cos there's no right or wrong in finance...

    There might be a higher probability that it will hit even lower this time.. It's a bigger structural problem for Europe & US.. The twin tower of the world, and if China property prices start to collapse.. it will be a triple effect..

    See the past trends from 2000:

  • UBS's Shady Dealings Are A Lehman Deja Vu [View article]
    According to my ubs friend, UBS has too many systems which are outdated and failed badly in managing the risk. To identify risk trades from entity, it seems that its the middle office who have to pull up the trades instead of the risk team.
    E.g they create another risk system because their previous risk system can be easily amended by traders. What i find disturbing is that why is the old system not able to prevent amendments and a new system which is the same has to be created to prevent any amendment. Its crap

    Blame should be on the management who only thinks of adding new projects when in charge and these new projects basically become a failure after a few year. Too many layers of management fats as all the projects are done by the junior guys and pass down from ton of layers of managements..

  • Is This Another 2008 Or 2009? [View article]
    Look at the chart from year 2000, the bull trend and the bear trend and you will notice similarities

    Death cross has been spotted and it a major trend that market will head low.. it might even be lower than the previous crash as the credit crisis created a even lower than the dotcom bubble..Reckon human always look at the most recent to use as a benchmark.

    Time will tell

  • It's A Sovereign Crisis, Not A Liquidity Crisis [View article]
    It's a sovereign crisis and it's going to be liquidity crisis for the banks.. it's hard for them to borrow $$ from one another due to their huge exposure to govt bonds.

    Why are they holding so much exposures in the first place..? Getting free $$ using public deposit but it's payback time for them.
    Serve them right....

  • America Stares Down The Threat Of Another Lost Decade [View article]
    The only way to save the consumers is to write off their debt, but that impossible for sure.

    Rule 1: Never trust the government and bankers who continue to tell you to invest and borrow to increase your debt level
    Rule 2: Never forget rule 1

  • The Market Panic, In A Nutshell [View article]
    Sell sell sell !!!

    Buy only if you are willing to hold for 10 years but only REITs as they paid some dividends..

    It's not worthwhile to go for 5% gain when u will be losing more than that..only those dumb-ass long fund managers will tell u to invest..
